Monday Music – September 17: FISH HEADS

Come listen to the FISH HEADS on Monday September 17 from 6-8!


The FishheadsThe Fish Heads are an impressive alternative bluegrass band steeped in 70s and 80s rock as well as traditional and original material. Most have been together playing music for over 20 years and have opened for bands like Nitty Gritty Dirt Band as well as Charlie Daniels and Leon Redbone.

Mike and Kim Monson take lead vocals as well as harmonies so pure and sweet they’ll make your toes curl. They also are versatile musicians switching off on stand-up bass and guitar, both also play some mandolin and from time to time they are drummers. Brian Ford is a gifted banjo player and is working on tabbing a book for Pete Wernick of Hot Rize fame. He has won the Iowa State Competition with his dicey licks. Bruce Bernhardt is the newest member and rounds out the combination nicely with his backup chops and Monroe inspired instrumentals on mandolin. Together these musicians are a rockin’ mix of covers from every genre and originals that range from soulful ballads of Kim’s pen to Brian’s intense and polished instrumentals. They are the real deal. Great for nightclubs, back yard parties and weddings.
